Internal Error has occured when using Rest API to assign variables to variable studio

Soham_SinhaSoham_Sinha Member Posts: 4
Hi all!

I am using the Rest API - specifically, the POST method to assign variables to variable studios (url link /variables/d/{did}/w/{wid}/e/{eid}/variables).

I have been following the Glassworks example in the API for the body of the request: (Below is a test example)

    "description": "test",
    "expression": "150 mm",
    "name": "date",
    "type": "Length"

However, I keep getting an internal error shown below. 

Is there an internal bug here? 

I have tested this in other documents - I can create a variable studio using the Rest API, but every time I try to assign variables to the variable studio, the POST fails with a message. "An Internal error has occured"

  "message": "An internal error has occurred; support code eab8dbd66b6f662dc1040301",
  "supportCode": "eab8dbd66b6f662dc1040301",
  "moreInfoUrl": "",
  "status": 500,
  "code": 0
